Stuck On 3rd Gear
 
'Sup everyboy? my WK is stuck on 3rd gear. when i shift from Park to Drive it jerks so abruptly it scares my 1yr-old daughter in the back seat, same thing when i move from Drive to Reverse.
So when i shift from Park to Drive instead of having the D, i get a 3. and it wont move even when i hit try to shift the lever left or right for the - and +. Dear JeepFellows, what is my problem here?
God Bless!

Check for codes. Could be input/output speed sensor(s).
I think P0700 is the most common code.

I would check the codes doing the key trick, it will give you a better idea of what is going on. don't reset the computer just yet by unplugging the battery so you don't lose the codes.

Mine did this once had the P0700 code reset the computer and all was well.. I was able to get the D if I held the shifter ovedr but it would go back to 3 once let go....

SHIFTER BEZEL !!!!!! (at least that's what I think it is)

It's notorious I had the same symptoms you did and will get stuck on 3rd or 2nd gear and can't use autostick !!! but keep in mind mine is a 3.7L not sure bout the 4.7L

check out the following thread for the part #'s

i also think it is the shifter bezel, it is fooling the transmission into thinking you are in the wrong gear.

Insert and turn the ignition key from "Off" to "On" three times, moderately fast and without pausing ("ON" is when the digital odometer displays):
Tip: use the "count to 5" method, where "1" is the first "On":
Off > On > Off > On > Off > On
0 1 2 3 4 5
0 - Insert key (Off)
1 - On
2 - Off
3 - On
4 - Off
5 - On
At the third "On" the odometer display will read "DTC REPORT" and list the codes. If no codes are present the message "Done" will appear.

then lookup the code here......

Thanks man, i just did it and it worked fine. however i got 2 codes P0700 which i already read alot about in the forums here. but i also got U1113 which is not included on the list in the link you sent me. any idea what the code is about?

Re: Stuck On 3rd Gear
 
Well I googled the code U1113 and i got two different answers.
U1113 - SCP (J1850) Invalid or Missing Data for Primary I
U1113-LOST A/C PRESSURE MESSAGE for the second one.
Which is the right definition for the code U1113?

disconnect the negative battery terminl and push on the brake pedal a couple times top release any stored energy. This will reset the pcm. Then give her a try

Have you had your transmission filter changed recently?
